18 Hole - Redding Golf Courses
The Golf Club at Tierra Oaks
Tierra Oaks Golf Club in Redding is the most difficult in the area and many would say the most beautiful. Opened in 1993 to wide acclaim. Stillwater Creek lines holes 1, 2, 14, 15, 16 and 18 while Golfers must shoot over the creek on 2, 16, 17 and 18. Add to that the tributaries marked as hazards on holes 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, and 13 you have a difficult and enjoyable day of golf. The club has had its growing pains being the second private club in town over the years and it is a golf club and not a traditional country club missing amenities such as swimming pool, tennis and the like. With golf primary on your agenda this is a course that will keep your attention, and with its varied terrain it will continue to be hold your interest. Amenities that are at the club include driving range, practice green, restaurant, banquet facility, and the lounge.
The Golf Club of Tierra Oaks is surrounded by vacant land and a fantastic neighborhood of high end custom homes set well back away from the course. Nearby by is Gold Hills, which has homes surrounding it in a closer more traditional fashion.
Tierra Oaks fairways are Bermuda, the greens are Bent grass with predominate undulations on many holes that make putting challenging. Occasional bunkers both fairway and greenside through out the course. Undulations from tee to green on each hole make it interesting for the player, you wont likely see the same shot twice

Gold Hills Golf Club
Gold Hills Golf Club is the only 18 hole public facility in the Redding area. The club opened in 1980 and has had multiple changes since. In it's current state it is enjoyable to play. In the last few years they have improved the playing conditions to a very nice level, at different times of the year it is equal to or better than some of the private courses in town as far as the conditions go.
This course is surrounded by a great neighborhood of custom homes. Lots are still being added and homes being built at a slow pace. Golf shots are not affected by the homes but some of the homes are affected by some wayward shots. Visit a little more neighborhood information Click here.
The fairways at Gold Hills Golf course are Bermuda, the greens are Bent. Occasional bunkers and ponds both fairway and greenside are in play on this course. The course is surrounded by homes with more being built. The course wonders through some small valley's with the homes over looking the course, while other holes are more level. It has the word Hills in the name for a reason and for most is best ridden in a cart the first time you play it. The finishing holes are a bit quirky and difficult with #16 a uphill par 4 that is an extra 2 clubs on the second shot. The 17th goes back down the hill all at once with its short par 3 distance. The shot usually is affected by a breeze and always the elevation change. A steeply sloped green from back to front awaits sitting well above the surrounding terrain which makes for a difficult up and down. The 18th is a par 5 with OB on both sides of the tee shot, hit a good one and is not to tough, a missed shot will cost you two.

Grape Ranch Golf Club
Grape Ranch Golf Club is probably the one of best layouts in town for a nine hole golf course opened originally in 1992. A beautiful view of Mt. Lassen is tempts you to look away from the game, keep your eye on the ball as the multiple ponds can jump out and gobble it up.
The fairways at Grape Ranch are Bermuda and greens are Bent Grass. Occasional bunkers greenside throughout the course. Water comes into play on the first three holes and #2 is particularly interesting. A short par 4 tempts the longer hitters but water protects the front right half of the green and the entire right side of the fairway.

There is a mobile home park to the right just off the first tee that gets a few balls hit its direction, and two neighborhoods on other portions. The course has plenty of room around it, very forgiving so swing until your hearts content. Most of your golf balls can be found.
